Russian Product Watch: Hell Squirrel Vodka.

(click images) Back story: late last year, the Russian government released an anti-alcoholism video starring Hell-Squirrel—a talking mangy rodent suffering from acute alcoholic psychosis (watch the video). Well. The Ministry of Health failed to copyright said squirrel, and now investment company Rusinvest has released an 80-proof vodka that is obviously capitalizing on Hell-Squirrel's considerable fame. Drunken Irony 1, Sober Russians 0. (via Animal NY)
Previously in Russian Product Watch: racist Obama ice cream.

It should also be specified that in Russia, the acute alcoholic psychosis can be described just as "Belochka" or Squirrel by common people, when speaking informally ;)
